Chorizo Sausage Recalled

Alexis Wholesale of Gardena, CA, is recalling approximately 6,210 pounds of 10-lb. boxes of “Salvadorian Brand Chorizo” sausage. The sausage has been recalled due to the fact that it contains monosodium glutamate (MSG) and is not declared on the label.  MSG is a flavor enhancer that is usually added to Chinese food, canned vegetables, soups and processed meats.  The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has classified MSG as a food ingredient that’s generally safe and requires the ingredient to be listed on the label when used. Food products that contain MSG may cause headaches, numbness, chest pain, nausea and weakness.

The recall pertains to sausages that were produced on July 2-27, 2012, and sold to a distributor in Los Angeles.  Consumers who purchased the product are asked to direct all questions to the manufacturer, Alexis Wholesale.
